Attend an Event: “It Starts With Me”
“It Starts With Me” is a free youth dialogues event focused on combatting discrimination through active witnessing happening from 10am – 5pm on Saturday July 14th at the Vancouver Central Public Library.
There will be workshops in the morning, which will foster discussion about hate crimes, fear and causes of discrimination through art, theatre and brainstorming. Lunch will be provided, and after lunch a guest speaker, Romi Chandra, a community activist, will also be addressing the group. This will be followed by several dialogue sessions, and the day will finish with a flash mob.
The Minister of State for Multiculturalism, John Yap, will also be dropping by to share some of his experience with multiculturalism and combatting discrimination as well.

- We want to spread awareness about discrimination and the fact that it is still a problem, and how to not just be a bystander, but an active witness.
- We want to create an environment where people feel willing to share their experiences about discrimination.
- We want to provide youth with a way to find out more about ways to combat discrimination.
